Hodgett: South Yarra Station Metro Rail Fail

South Yarra Station Metro Rail Fail

Daniel Andrews just wasted around $800 million on East West Link compensation which would have paid for a new South Yarra train station.

Melbourne is growing at nearly 100,000 people every year and everyone agrees we need a new rail alignment to relieve pressure on our transport network.

But we need to make sure that if we are building a new $11 billion rail alignment, we need to get it right and not have another Labor disaster like Myki or the desalination plant.

If Labor can’t even get a train ticketing system right, how can we trust them to build a new train network?
